ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that ForeScout CounterACT™ has been named to the Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Product List (APL). DoD agencies and integrators are required to fulfill their system needs by only purchasing APL listed products. ForeScout is the only vendor offering a network access control (NAC) solution that is both approved under the DoD’s strict 2013 requirements and one that has achieved the industry’s highest level of security certification involving assurances at the Common Criteria EAL 4+level.

The ForeScout CounterACT platform addresses visibility, access, mobile and endpoint compliance challenges impacting government and commercial enterprises. In order to achieve UC APL listing, CounterACT was validated as compliant with applicable Security Technical Implementation Guidance (STIG) requirements, which amount to more than 1,000 different implementation requisites. In addition, Common Criteria certification provides ForeScout’s federal, civilian and defense clients worldwide with high confidence in the implementation of security mechanisms in CounterACT.

“As you can imagine, we have always held high standards for our products; however, this UC APL certification is a pronounced achievement and represents many months of rigorous testing,” said Wallace Sann, regional vice president of systems engineering and federal CTO at ForeScout. “We are extremely pleased that our network security solution was recertified, which makes CounterACT 7.0 the only NAC that has satisfied both IA and IO test cases and fulfilled the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria certification requirement. These certifications further our efforts to support government programs such as the Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring (CDM) initiative.”

ForeScout CounterACT is used extensively in military, federal and supporting contractor applications for: port-control DISA-STIG adherence, Host-based Security System (HBSS) deployment, Command Cyber Readiness Inspections (CCRI), Information Assurance & Vulnerability Assessment (IAVA) and DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring projects. CounterACT’s placement on the DoD UC APL list is the result of testing by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) who certify that it has passed the Information Assurance (IA) and Interoperability (IO) requirements. In order to expedite the UC APL listing process, ForeScout partnered with Corsec Security, a consulting firm with more than 14 years of FIPS 140-2 validation, Common Criteria certification and UC APL experience.

With real-time visibility, flexible control and agentless assessment features, ForeScout CounterACT offers a reference platform for government and commercial entities to realize continuous monitoring and mitigation objectives. Beyond the conventional NAC capabilities of roles-based device access authentication, policy-based enforcement and guest management, CounterACT delivers dynamic asset intelligence to help IT organizations find and mitigate rogue, vulnerable and BYOD devices, as well as remediate endpoint integrity gaps, such as those posed by inactive, corrupt or non-existent host-based systems security and management software. The appliance employs a scalable, plug-n-play architecture that readily works with diverse and legacy infrastructure to ensure rapid deployment, low cost of ownership and accelerated time to value. Additionally, administering multiple appliances can be accomplished in a single CounterACT console capable of managing hundreds of thousands of endpoints.
